Be Led By The Spirit,
Through The Word
Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come
In Matthew 15:19, Jesus said “For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies.”This means man, on his own, is capable of destroying himself. Therefore, it’ll be out of place to makesuch arguments as “the voice of man is the voice of God,” or as some say, “Majority can’t be wrong.” Any thought, word, theory, argument or direction that proceeds from the natural man shouldn’t be trusted since it’s not substantiated by the Word of God.
“But how can I know and follow the right counsel, in a world where there’re so many voices?” you might ask. Firstly, the Word of God is the voice of God, and that’s your surest-guide in life. Get acquainted with the Word, for that’s the way you get to know the counsel of the Spirit. Jesus said in John 10:27,“My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me.”
In addition, prior to His ascension, Jesus made an emphatic statement about the ministry of the Holy Spirit— to lead and guide you in life:“And I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Comforter (Counselor, Helper, Intercessor, Advocate, Strengthener, and Standby), that He may remain with you forever”(John 14:16AMP). The Holy Spirit lives in you, and He also goes with you. As you spend time in fellowship with Him and with the Word you’ll learn to discern His voice from that of men; you’ll always receive proper guidance.
No other personality in this life can lead you into success, victory and rest as the Holy Spirit would. You’ll make accurate decisions, go to the right places at the right time, and your life will be in sync with God’s perfect will when you yield to the Holy Spirit by following His Word. Remember, “…as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God” (Romans 8:14).
I thank you for giving me your precious Holy Spirit to be my guide, teacher, counselor and comforter. I yield my spirit to Him only, to be led, instructed and directed in all my dealings in life. As I do this, my entire life is transformed from glory to glory
in Jesus’ mighty Name. Amen.
